The dense, ruthless African jungle forms the backdrop setting for the upcoming NetEnt release, the Gorilla Kingdom slot. Needless to say, the game is inspired by herbivorous apes which usually inhabit the jungles of Sub-Saharan Africa which is depicted in the game. During their gaming sessions here, players will not only come across the largest living primates but also special gorilla masks which once collected transform regular symbols into the most rewarding gorilla symbols.
The Gorilla Kingdom slot also comes packed with several other bonuses that players get to explore including its Free Spins bonus which delivers top winnings worth up to 4,096x players’ stake that players can scoop on every free spin. In addition to this animal-themed game, NetEnt has released a number of similar slot games such as Jumanji, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Planet of the Apes, Jungle Spirit, and many others.
The Gorilla Kingdom slot by NetEnt comes packed with 5 reels, 4 rows and a total of 1,024 paylines or ways to win. The game is playable across all devices from just 0.10 credits per spin. As expected from NetEnt which always impresses with its slot releases, the Gorilla Kingdom slot comes packed with high-definition animations and graphics which come to life with every new spin of the reels. The game’s backdrop shows a stunning jungle waterfall while the game’s rhythmic soundtrack has a mystic vibe to it.
Symbols featured in the Gorilla Kingdom slot include lower-valued standard playing cards and more rewarding leopard, okapi, hornbill and gorilla symbols. The latter is the most rewarding symbol that pays up to 4x players’ stake. The Gorilla Kingdom featured two bonuses without wild symbols included. The main highlight of the game is its Free Spins bonus that players trigger by getting at least three scattered diamond symbols on the reels.
Depending on the number of triggering scatters, players receive 10, 15 or 20 free spins. During this bonus, two or more extra scatters landed on the reels bring extra free spins. The next bonus mode in line is the game’s Symbol Transform mode. During the Free Spins bonus, the most rewarding gorilla symbols can randomly become gorilla mask symbols. Once this happens, these symbols fill slots of the animal panel located on the side of the reels.
There are four slots in total and players need to collect a certain number of gorilla masks in order to fill these animal panels. Players need six gorilla masks for leopard symbols to transform into gorilla symbols while twelve gorilla masks are necessary for hornbill symbols to become gorilla symbols. Moreover, players need to collect eighteen and twenty-four gorilla masks for okapi and pangolin symbols to turn into gorilla symbols respectively.
Once players have managed to collect all twenty-four gorilla masks, they have upgraded all symbols to the most rewarding gorilla symbols which brings more generous winning opportunities. The Gorilla Kingdom slot features a favorable RTP of 96.03% and rewarding, medium volatility spinning actions that leave no one empty-handed. However, to explore the African jungle with the Gorilla Kingdom slot, players have to wait until the 23rd of April.
